A description of the experience
Professor Richard Dawkins – Unweaving the Rainbow
The spotlight passes but exhilaratingly, before doing so it gives us time to comprehend something of this place in which we fleetingly find ourselves and the reason that we do so.
We are alone among animals in foreseeing our end. We are also alone among animals in being able to say before we die:
Yes this is why it was worth coming to life in the first place.
A Keats and a Newton, listening to each other might hear the galaxies sing.
